I adore strong, independent women and this week I was in a room full of them at the Sunday Times & Sky Sports Women of the Year Awards which left me feeling more motivated than ever. Judy Murray, Victoria Pendleton and Baroness Tanni Grey Thompson were just a handful of sassy women there to make me feel tip top, not to mention the inspiring stories from athletes. All the winners and nominees are a tribute to hard work, talent, total dedication and women. Girl power! Chatting to the lovely and very funny Rebecca Adlington made me feel as though I should nip down to my local swimming baths, dive into the deep end and get fit in true, splashing style. I should probably learn to swim first though so… arm bands at the ready.
